The royalist organiser of a Coronation party was forced to apologise after he displayed a massive Nazi flag during the celebration.
Organiser Stan Squires apologised after displaying the huge swastika during Coronation celebrations, which was draped over a table during an event at Buckie Fishermens Hall in Buckie, northern Scotland.
The table also displayed a German army helmet and several more bits of memorabilia at the event, which took place over the Coronation weekend, which saw King Charles and Queen Camilla be officially crowned.

While Stan apologised for the offensive flag, which caused an uproar in the community, he said the flag was put there to showcase life in the 1940s, which Nazi Germany had “unfortunately” been a big part of.
He told local media outletGrampian Online: "I'm going to be 82 soon. This was part of my life growing up in the 40s so I was just trying to put a story across.
"Unfortunately for us, a big part of that was Nazi Germany but I really didn't want to upset anybody. It was just about showing off war memorabilia.
"There was no offence meant by it but if I offended anybody then I would like to apologise to them. It really wasn't meant to be that way."
He said the “main thing” was that the events had done as intended, and raised money for the charities Clan Cancer Support Moray and Oaks Elgin.
"We've raised £1,270 for that and that's the main thing.”

Stan may be right by saying that Nazism is slowly becoming a thing of the past.
The Daily Star reported last monththat the world’s oldest surviving Nazi had died at the age of 102 without ever seeing the inside of a prison cell.
Josef Schütz managed to avoid serving his five-year jail sentence as he was allowed to roam free while his case was being appealed in a higher court in Germany.
The sick Nazi was last year found guilty of aiding and abetting the murders of 3,518 prisoners at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, just outside Berlin, between 1942 and 1945.
